From pirate enclaves to utopian communities

I missed this when it came out, but this first (soon to be followed by a second volume I was informed) issue of Affinities journal, has an extraordinary collection of really interesting essays examining the workings of the Zapatistas, Italian social centers, and other alternative movements.


“From pirate enclaves to utopian communities, from communal republics to occupied zones, the history of constituted powers has always also been a history of radical experiments and everyday practices in spaces that are alternative to, within and against these powers.

The first issue of Affinities is dedicated to a critical discussion of the contemporary manifestations, and future prospects of, autonomous spaces around the world.”
